“It is Further Ordered that the Commission shall retain jurisdiction of this matter for purposes of implementing and enforcing this Consent Order, and that Respondent’s failure to comply with any provision herein shall constitute a violation of a Commission order pursuant to Arkansas Code Annotated § 17-42-311(a)(2) for which the Commission may impose disciplinary action upon that Respondent.”
- The Commission found Respondent Brandy Thomas guilty of violating Commission Regulations 8.5(a) and 10.1(b), and Arkansas Code Annotated § 17-42-311(a)(13).
- Respondent Thomas engaged in real estate activities independent of her principal broker. Respondent prepared and presented the February 28, 2007 VA real estate contract without Complainant’s permission or knowledge. Respondent attempted to have the February 28, 2007 VA contract transferred to her new firm without Complainant’s knowledge or permission. Respondent signed the February 28, 2007 VA contract as “Principal Broker or Authorized Signature” without Complainant’s permission or knowledge.
- Respondent did not protect and promote the interest of Buyer. Respondent instructed Buyer to sign the March 6, 2007 VA contract identifying Respondent’s new real estate firm as the Selling firm, knowing that the February 28, 2007 VA contract signed by Buyer, identifying Complainant’s real estate firm as the Selling firm had previously been accepted by VA and that the Exclusive Buyer Agency Agreement between Buyer and Complainant’s firm was in force.
- Respondent’s activities as described above constitute improper dealings.
